I've been reading about how Toronto is ready to throw an offer at Stamkos and even one possibly bigger than 10 mill. What I don't understand is how they can afford it. Capfriendly says they only have around 3 mill in space. Am I missing something?
Thank you! I felt like the only one who saw this on bright, obvious flashing letters.
Yea getting Stamkos is the most expensive player we can get but he is also the most guaranteed return on your investment. Backes, Okposo, Ladd and others are good players but they need to fit well into the system and mesh well with the players around them to be great. Stamkos will produce no matter who is on his line and what your system is. He has to be our #1 priority. It's not everyday a 26 year old superstar in his prime is a free agent. And it's definitely not every day they Red Wings actually have the cap space for a player like that.
